“In the realm of Intelligent Transport Systems, collaboration is essential. Our collaboration with TTS Italia and other ITS National associations is one of the main building blocks for innovation and for expediting the deployment of ITS solutions across Europe. By joining our resources and expertise together, we are not only amplifying our collective impact but also creating the way for the upcoming groundbreaking advancements in transportation technology. As we delve into this transformative journey, our success hinges on the strength of our cooperation and commitment to a shared vision of a smarter, more efficient future of mobility. I also would like to congratulate TTS Italia on their 25th anniversary this year,” says Joost Vantomme, CEO of ERTICO.

The episode also addresses the strategic utilisation of data and artificial intelligence (AI) in the implementation of Mobility as a Service (MaaS). The inspiring conversation highlights the indispensable role of user-centric approaches in shaping transportation planning, underscoring the profound impact of collaboration between ERTICO and ITS National associations.
